Spring Thanksgiving

I have always wondered why we only do Thanksgiving/Christmas meals only once a year.
After making my 1st turkey for Christmas I made the decision that I was definitely doing it more than twice a year.
So out went the invites to the family and in came the people and the yummy side dishes!
For obvious reasons I did this, to spend time with family, to eat great food, lots of food options and plenty of left overs.
I also realize now why this shouldn't be done this time of year... the food.  Lots of it!

Eating loads in November/December is no big deal, it's winter!
With bikini season coming up, let's just say I am not having a "Thanksgiving" meal until November!

It was great fun though, I absolutely love my family and I am taking every possible chance to see them and get to know them better since I have never had the opportunity to spend this much time with them.


  1. Becca and John,

    Good food. Good treats. Great company!

    You know, I am very fortunate to have you as a cousin. You are truly a great person. I enjoy your positive energy, your thoughtfulness and how you put a strong emphasis on family. These are very important traits to have. It's not often I meet someone as young as yourself, that has this figured out. I guess Uncle Dougie and Aunt Catherine brought you up right.

    Keep up the good work. Continue being a Good Mother and wife. Follow your dreams. And keep reaching for the stars. (and always remember to keep a little Jamaican in you!)

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
